a dead even race in ohio. five points for obama. when they last tested here a number of weeks ago. shows momentum on romney side. the question is does he have momentum to push him perhaps 270. >> bret: quick answer of impact of the storm, hurricane sandy and what it means for the race? >> could it mean -- i think it's freezing the race. it's hard for either romney or obama to break through with new, with some new initiative while everybody is focused on sandy. i don't think it affects the turnout. >> bret: karl? >> it could effect turn-out. people affected by this; particularly, people unable to cope with it might be less likely to turn out. let's see when the storm hits. when it passes. if people can put themselves back together. the other thing is it will push the campaigning further west. we will see more appearances in iowa, colorado, nevada, wisconsin, western ohio than we would have seen otherwise in fewer appearances and florida. fewer appearances in places like virginia and pennsylvania. eastern ohio. >> bret: last thing, quickly. we had an ipad app that people can put in their m
in the all-important state of ohio. president obama will be staying close to washington as he continues to monitor the developments of this storm. let's talk about ohio and why it is a particularly close race there. we asked likely voters who their choice was for president. barack obama has a 50% to 46% margin over mitt romney in this latest poll, which is why mitt romney and paul ryan are stu stumping there today after modifying their plans. they were going to be in virginia, but because of the storm now they're in ohio. as you see here, the two rally supporters just a short time ago in salina, ohio. they have both spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on their calendar. let's talk a little more about the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, i
, north carolina, virginia, he could win. but so could president obama, even if romney wins ohio and those other states. the tiebreaker would be colorado. whoever wins colorado in that one scenario wins the white house. and raj and jesse, in the latest about in news poll, colorado was tied. back to you. >> thank you very much, steve. >>> let's bring in our chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. and it's supposed to be beautiful. we're here. the weekend is here. >> i know, i know. this is good timing for a lot of us here as that doppler radar scans around, finding dry conditions across the greater northern california region. and one of the things that really helped to get all this sunshine in here, not only inland, but at the coast is this wind out of the north, and also slightly offshore about 5 to 10 miles per hour. that's all we needed to give us some 70s here across the bay area. 74 in concord right now. 75 in livermore, and 76 in santa rosa. and if you like, this as raj was hinting at, we're going to go even warmer. by this weekend, temperatures expected in the 80s for livermore and also in
been canceled and even president obama isn't going to ohio tomorrow. he's going to let bill clinton, the former president campaign for him in youngstown, ohio instead. it looks like mitt romney is going to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the pres

, lester. it is really no surprise that president obama is kicking off the weekend here in ohio. this state is really key to his midwest firewall. if mitt romney doesn't win ohio, it is very unlikely that he will hold on to the presidency. according to our latest nbc news "wall street journal" marist poll, president obama has an honest lead here in ohio. let's take a look at the latest numbers. according to our poll, president obama has a six-point lead in the buckeye state, which is unchanged from last month. he's gotten high marks after hurricane sandy with seven in ten voters approving of his handling of the storm and he has a slight edge when it comes to handling the economy. 48% say mr. obama would do a better job compared to 46% who side with romney. on friday, mr. obama made a three-stop blitz here in ohio, staking his closing argument on the auto bailout, which is widely popular here. and which republicans oppose. he also slammed romney for claiming that jeep is shipping jobs to china. it's a claim the romney campaign defends that has been widely discredited. take a listen to what p
obama has maintained a small but a very consistent lead in ohio. i don't know of any poll that has shown the president not leading over the last few months, as a matter of fact. >> do you think it counts for the rise of independence? >> we have a good ground operation. >> what do you think -- >> i'm sorry? >> what do you think accounts for the rise of independents towards the romney campaign? what's going on there? >> i'm not sure there are many true independents. i think people who even refer to themselves as independents typically feel some kind of allegiance to one of the major parties or the other. ohio is a very closely divided state, but ohio's unemployment, as you know, is 7%. the auto industry, which ohioans value greatly and provides a lot of jobs for our people is doing really well, and thanks to the president, and so i think ohioans are feeling -- i think they think our economy is coming back. >> any credit to your republican governor? >> i'm sorry? >> do you give any credit for that economy to your republican governor? >> i think two -- >> i do, candy. >> well, candy, i think

obama maintaining a lead in swing states including florida, virginia and in ohio obama leads romney 50 to 45% among likely voters. he also has a huge advantage when it comes to early voters. among those who have already cast their ballots in the state, 60% of ohioans favor the president while only 34% voted for romney. meanwhile, team romney is pumping cash into states not expected to be competitive at this stage. the governor's campaign says it is seeing a resurgence in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota. the obama campaign is pouring cold water on that very theory saying it shows signs of a struggling romney campaign. quote, romney campaign desperate. putting up ads in pennsylvania and minnesota, prove he's struggling to find a new path to 270. that prompted the romney campaign to respond with a tweet of its own, spokesman ryan williams, quote, nervous. obama campaign says minnesota and pennsylvania aren't battlegrounds but running more than 1.1 million in ads there. the baaing and forth on twitter, ben. who to believe. i'll say this. minnesota is a blue state that bill clinton di
from the carolinas to ohio, 8 million without power. president obama held a conference call with governors and mayors in affected area after declaring several states federal disaster areas. the president canceled all campaign events for the third day. within the past few minutes we got word that the president's travel pool was told to gather at white house, which means the president is going to do something. however, we do not know what that is yet. according to our nbc news team at the white house. and governor romney also canceled rallying today, but he did attend an event in ohio. his campaign describes it as a storm relief event. >> i've had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas, and they've talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people aat dayton got up this morning and went to the grocery store and purchased things these families will need. i appreciate your generosity. >> while calling president obama's response to the storm outstanding, governor chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on t
this point forward until election day. ohio and wisconsin are clearly part of president obama's midwestern firewall, if you will, trying to make sure that mitt romney does not have a path to get to 260 electoral votes. so expect to see the president here and two other stops later today and having key surrogates try to make sure the buckeye state is in his column on election day. out on the stump we've heard the president in his closing argument essentially make the point that mitt romney would be a rubber stamp for the right wing and here is a little bit more of what the president had to say last night in boulder, colorado. >> so we've made real progress these past four years, but colorado, we all know our work is not yet done. >> that's kind of the tone of the closing argument the obama campaign is making is that we've made some progress, but it's not time to turn back yet. so essentially asking the voters for another four years. >> steve: meanwhile what, is governor romney saying in the final days to convince people, hey, let's get a new guy in there? >> well, obviously both campaigns ar

, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n

is not reflected in the new cnn poll. it is where it was a couple weeks ago. president obama hangs on to ohio and many believe he will hang on and be re-elected to a second term. this is not by a lack of trying by both candidates to win over last-minute votes and they are doing it to spend an incredible amount of money. $177 million buying television time, much of that money spent right here in northern ohio. we should point out in the cleveland market in 2008, total campaign ads, television time, $36 million. in 2010, it was up to $44 million spent. so far, we are at $88 million in cleveland alone. some say it's closer to $97 million and we've still got a way to go. 400% increase over two2008. the cost of a commercial in the 6:00 news is up over 400% in this market. i'll leave you with one other fascinating fanth. if you took all the political commercials that ran in the cleveland market since the beginning of october and ran them back-to-back you'd sit down and watch them for four and a half days straight. back to you, victor and christi. >> thank you. >>> speaking about polling, that could
's race in ohio and mitt romney and barack obama are the candidates. maybe your mike is working. >> you're right, early voting is key. and part of that strategy is focus on two groups. what i call soft supporters, those are folks who voted for president obama in 2008, they have not seen the progress that they would have hoped to have seen, but they still support him, but they're not necessarily going to be compelled to vote early. so to push those people to the poll. the second group is newly registered voters in those key counties because they may be turned off on election day if the lines are too long, if they deal with some of the obstruction nico obstructionism that we can expect. >> as i was looking at those 106 counties, we think of them as like swing voters, but it's not really that. people have their minds made up. it's just which one of he is them that live in that county show up. is it about getting them to the polls some. >> i think so. and when we reference to these candidates, we're hearing pretty different arguments and that's because barack obama is deep into his closing
the latest polls show that the race in battle ground states like ohio have president obama leading mitt romney by five points when counting both early voters and ohioans who will actually vote on election day. but the overall race is a dead heat among ohioans who are going to cast their ballot on november 6. so how does president obama or mitt romney break the stalemate among the voters? they can basically either woo the undecideds or fire up the base. for president obama, it has become increasingly clear that the strategy is about one word, early. >> we can vote early in illinois, we can vote early in illinois. just like you can vote right now in florida. p just like you can vote early in colorado. just like you can vote early here in nevada. you can vote early. anybody who is here who has not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vote. vote. vote. >> so did you get the message obama supporters some vote, vote, vote, early, early, early. it is a message directed specifically at the base. and to drive the point home about early voting, president obama went home to cast his vote this p
. >> and ohio has been critical. in fact, necessary to every republican presidential win. but president obama has held on to a small lead there. his strategists are buoyed by choosing an overwhelming 2-1 lead for the president among early voters. the president staged the finale of his 48-hour marathon campaign in ohio. >> i am glad to be back in cleveland, ohio. >> despite the money, the trips, and the speeches, ohio wree main stubbornly in the toss-up category. a cnn poll reveals the president with a 50% to 46% lead. former ohio governor ted strickland and virginia governor bobbing mcdonnell up next. dad's tablet... or lauren's smartphone... at&t has a plan built to help make families' lives easier. introducing at&t mobile share. one plan lets you share data on up to 10 devices with unlimited talk and text. add a tablet for only $10 per month. at&t. add a tablet for only $10 per month. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind
some impact. not good for obama. romney what to cancel appearances in ohio, which were important to him. he did go to iowa, which indicates how close iowa really is. we'll talk about that a little bit, him getting in the "des moines register" endorsement, which is important i think. the other thing romney decided to do is do fund raising in the effected states which make sense. in the end, the president of the united states is commander-in-chief. he gets to take center stage. it only helps him. >> kimberly: dana? >> dana: from a political standpoint, romney's e-mail that went out to -- i'm not on the list but a friend sent it to me saying don't donate to our campaign, if you have time and resources available send it to the red cross. check on your neighbors. from a media standpoint, this storm is rightly going to stake center stage. my sister is in colorado. if you're in colorado, swing state or any of the other swing states, the ads are unbearable in terms of the amount of negative ads. i think both of the campaigns would be smart to take negative ads off the airwaves right now. my sis
drilling. and then bill clinton campaigning for president obama and how is it going to work? we'll have the numbers in ohio for you which are critical to the election. >> let's give the job to the man who has done the job so he can finish the job. >> cenk: yeah, 50/50. not so much. all right, later in the program you'll enjoy this. a he will elbow on the head. what for? awesome hypocrisy. stick around for the elbow of the day. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. >> cenk: as we told you sandy has made landfall ten minutes ago, longer than that, in new jersey. it has affected many of the areas around new jersey as well. that was a picture of new york that we are a looking at on 57th street where a crane is suspended over head and everyone is worried to death over that. that is a building that we've done a story about--that has a $90 million apartment in it. this storm is taken a little more serious, it's affecting the rich--wow. we'll talk about that later in the show. when asked about the possible implications of the election, this is what president obama said. >> obama: i'm not
. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a romney victory without winning ohio. okay. everybody is in ohio. it's such a bizarre undertaking to go through the map and everyone now has these nice interactive things. is that your sense of the race? my sense of the race is that it's very hard to see it not coming down to ohio if we are sitting down on election night figuring out what the call is going to be made, it looks like ohio is going to determine it. you have been around the country. i'm just curious, what sort of the mood has been in different swing districts that you have been in? you are active in all parts of the country. >> we have been active in a number of battleground states. i have most recently been to ohio and new hampshire. the mood is different depending on the day and where you go. one of the things i did not find to be true is mitt the momentum. i think what we saw in the aftermath of the first debate was romney folks feeling like it was all of a sudden okay to be proud to be out as romney voter. >> true. >> i did not see that before that. i think th
